    “I think, as time passes, your memory of your time in a certain place becomes more fond, and this has given me an opportunity to go back to the University and give back just a little of what it gave me,”

    “I really felt I could have an impact at Lyme College. The pay-it-forward concept is important to me – my last year at Parson’s, I had an emergency situation where I needed scholarship money, and they made it happen. Lyme is like that – they make it happen for the students."

    “My mother always told us it is better to give than receive and to always consider giving back something to our community,” he said. “I felt this scholarship fund achieves that vision. It also supports a worthy university.”
